Computational Thinking

This course is based on the CYBER.ORG Computational Thinking curriculum which incorporates the four elements of computational thinking (decomposition, pattern recognition, abstraction, and algorithm design) in a project-based approach to learning within core subject areas. Teachers will be provided guidance about how to embed computational thinking vocabulary into everyday learning experiences and upon completion have a developed lesson to incorporate into their classroom. Completion of the workshop can be used towards fulfilling requirements for North Dakota Level II credential for Computer Science and Cybersecurity. This workshop session will use a blended learning approach. Teachers will need to attend a Teams online Meeting, complete asynchronous work, and check in periodically throughout the month.
